Emotional Scenes

Sometimes ... I get so caught up in a scene I'm writing ... so involved with the characters and the emotions ... that I find myself crying. Not just welling up with tears, but tears actually rolling down my cheeks, one after another.

Then I stop, and I read what I've written, and I *hope* that the emotion I'm feeling is translated to the page.


How about you?
Have you written or read anything recently that has moved you to tears?


  1. Oh, yes. I wrote about an event that happened when I was a child. My father had severed a finger while preparing feed for the cows. My brother and I carried the milk back to the house. The emotions of that time just washed over me.

  2. Yep, sure have. Best wishes with your writing.
